Interview with Anton Labuschagne

When did you first start writing?
I started to write this book "Discipleship: Discover your Identity in Christ" in January 2015 due to the urgency in my heart to train and equip disciples for the work of the ministry
What is this book about?
This book is about equipping any individual to become an effective follower/disciple of Jesus by discovering his/her true Identity in Christ. The ultimate purpose is to stir an urgency and compelling love in the heart of every reader to reach out to others and to confidently facilitate them to become Disciples. In other word to start a process of "Multiplication" to populate heaven and to plunder hell.
How will the reader benefit from this book?
No book on the shelve can replace the Bible which is the Word of God on which we base our faith on. The benefit of this book about Discipleship is that it contains numerous scripture references on relevant issues which will equip the reader to apply the Word of God effectively in any possible situation. More importantly it helps the reader to understand his/her position "IN CHRIST" which in close fellowship with the Holy Spirit is a place of Faith, Authority, Power, Praise, Victory and Intimacy with God as it reveals what it means to be unconditionally loved by a Father who are able and willing to do the impossible in our lives. In short it will adjust the words, thoughts and actions for any believer to claim boldly what Jesus deserved for them on the cross. When systematically studying all 22 Chapters over a period of 22 weeks, it will dramatically change the life of any believer in Christ Jesus and will equip him/her to make other disciples with confidence
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I believe being an indie author in the times we live is much more effective as I do not have to allow anyone else to control and/or limit the effective distribution of this life changing book.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords is giving me an opportunity to reach an incredible database of readers to sell my book in an effective and quick way.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing is to share my life changing experience of 30 years in a world where a Heavenly Father's faithfulness, the power of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ and the amazing truth of having the Holy Spirit as a best friend should be relevant and effective in the life of every believer.
What are you working on next?
I will be working next on publishing an advanced Discipleship book as well as producing and Audio book.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I am inspired and energized by the truth that I am a child of God and He is going before me to conduct my life to peace and prosperity.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I am Pastoring and facilitating small Discipleship groups.
How do you approach cover design?
I have found a designer and forwarded some ideas I found on google images. My approach was to be in-time and to catch the eye of those who would scan the shelve for a book. I have purposed the design to challenge everyone that sees to book to at least pick it up and read the back page.

The Cost and Joy of Discipleship The lack of true discipleship undermines anything that we seek to accomplish in life. Many Christians today never commit to a growing relationship with the Lord and because of this they become unfit to face the challenges in life.
